Heading south from Boston, right up the hill off exit 8 on 93 south, is a view like you can’t believe of the city. The old quarry has been drained and now several parks, the Granite Links Golf Club, and apartment complexes have taken over. No membership required to go to the wonderful pub at the golf club. They have a huge bar and a very large dining room.
The menu varies from bar food like chicken wings and pizza to a huge selection of seafood and steaks. The prices are resonable, $22 for Scallops, $25 for 2 filet medallions, $10 for Four cheese pizza. We sat at the bar and found the service to be extrememly friendly. The atmosphere certainly changes over the couple of hours from quite and relaxing to crazy busy and loud. All the time the service continued to be wonderful.
I had the pizza. An attempt at a thin crust (not so thin) brick oven dish served on a cutting board. Great presentation and wonderful looking, served with a side of olive oil with red crushed pepper. It was sort of bland honestly. My partner enjoyed a Turkey Club sandwich that easily could have served two. He liked the added touch of cucumber to the club and the sweet pototato fries.
After a few beers each and a great meal, we walked out full and spent less than $50 for two. Can’t beat that. Next time we’ll take a look at the more interesting selections like lamb tacos.
